Sometimes we block our own blessing by not listening to the signs the lord provides us!
I was in a committed relationship for four years with a gentleman who during our last year of our relationship got down on bend and knee and proposed to me. What was supposed to be the happiest moment of my life, ended up being a pivotal moment. It was only two months into our engagement when I prayed to the lord to give me discernment over my relationship. On one occasion I vividly remember me asking the lord is this man the man in which he intends me to spend the rest of my life with.That night I dreamt that a women called me to tell me that my fiancé was cheating on me. I woke up in tears. I called my then fiancé and told him about my dream and of course he denied it. Although my woman's intuition told me other wise, I had no proof. For nights, I continued to pray and ask God to show me the truth.
A couple of weeks went by and nothing happened. I actually put the dream behind me and thought maybe it was just that, a dream. Then, a week after my birthday I started to receive phone calls, but the person wouldn't say anything. They would just call and hang up. I told my then fiancé about the calls and he just laughed it off. After what seemed to be the fifteen call I answer and say "Hello, if you have something to say say it". A young woman replies and says are you dating ________. I reply "Yes, he's my fiancé". She then tells me that she and my fiancé have been together for the past 2 years and is now pregnant with his child. I calmly reply "thank you for this information I will speak with him about this". You see ladies, in a situation like this, the enemy wants to see you act out of character because "it" wants you to know that "it" has won. What I didn't know then, but I know now is that the lord was preparing my heart for a heartbreak like no other. I truly thought this man was going to be the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. If I would have listened to the signs sooner I would have saved myself the pain. I never wanted to go through the heartache, but going through this has molded me to be a better me. I truly believe that the lord has a plan for me and is didn't include him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
